    This is what we call, moda choon, without knowing the real facts. SL is going backward and these monks never realise what need to be done, though these guys should be seeing the reality as it is.

    Pepsi and coke was handed out to the protesters to quench their thirst after standing in the hot sun.

    Wimal is saying he is using a chinese IPONE (not IPHONE) and MR will say his NIKE is from China.

    On a serious note, it is good if can reduce our foriegn goods consumption..it will save a lot of foreign exchange.

    DeSilva Friday, 23 March 2012 02:48 PM

    Loosers!! These monks are fed with our tax money for no good reason. Good for nothing.

    shiranthi Friday, 23 March 2012 12:26 PM

    mohie Friday, 23 March 2012 02:55 PM

    Its stupid to boycott American products.... honestly if there is any truth in American brought resolution then we have to accept it and do some things to clean Srilankan image in front of world community.. just boycott American products not the solution. If American boycott Lanka products then,,,,,,, just think ,,,,,,Indian decision politically motivated...

    Rakith Monday, 02 April 2012 05:06 PM

    US won't even notice if every single person in Sri Lanka stopped using US products. Our GDP and population is far too insignificant.
